Working out doesn't mean you have to part with your baby!

4 reasons why you should set aside an "exercise for mom and baby" time everyday:
1. Daily physical activity reduces stress.
2. It can help you sleep better
3. Fitness helps keep you healthy and has been linked to reducing the risk of some diseases and to warding off depression (goodbye to post partum depression or just those days when your baby's turned into a monster!)
4. Exercising like strength training can help prevent osteoporosis
Exercise also improves self-esteem, increases stamina and ultimately helps you be able to do continuous work for longer (remember, motherhood doesn't end at 6pm!)
Now have I told you why it can be good for your baby too?
~Exercising with your baby will help him learn good movement and coordination skills
~Both you and your baby will have fun
~Exercising with your baby can certainly be one of the most fun (and beneficial) activities you and your baby can do together.

OK, so say hello to your new little training buddy and start exercising!
Note: Most doctors and midwives suggest waiting until your six-week postnatal check before beginning to exercise so it is recommended to consult them before doing any activity.
